Mrs. Riggins' Keen Kindergarten Class!!
Hello and Welcome to my classroom!! My name is Bethany Riggins and I will be your Kindergarten teacher this year at Petersburg Primary. This is my first year teaching at Petersburg but is my twelfth year teaching overall. Before this I taught Special Education and NC PreK in North Carolina. I graduated from Saint Bonaventure University, with a B.S. in Elementary Education and Special Education. Last year, I added to my experiences with a Birth - Kindergarten add-on certification to my license, obtained from Western Carolina University.
I was born and raised in the small town of Allegany, NY, located in upstate New York. I moved to North Carolina not long after graduating from college and met my husband, Randall. We got married in June of 2012 and have a dog named Shawty and a cat named Elvira. In addition, I have an outgoing step-daughter named Courtney, a driven step-son named Cam and an adventurous grandson named Ryder. My husband and I enjoy traveling all over the world, riding our motorcycle and spending time with our families.
I look forward to a very exciting school year. I know its not exactly what you all expected for your first year of school but I can promise that it will be a very memorable and exciting learning experience. Please feel free to contact me via email with any questions, needs or concerns you may have.
